Hello, I'm still here!

 Hello and welcome here.  I just popped in to say hi and to let you know I'm still here.  I lost my dad at the end of August to cancer and we spent time as a family visiting him this past summer, and then returned for the funeral.  I haven't had much time to create but I'm ready to get back into the swing of things so you'll be hearing from me real soon.

Love you dad!!

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I wanted to ink up a set I haven't used before and this cutie I can't believe hadn't seen ink, it's called Hymn Girls:  Sitting to the Left.  And how amazing is that sentiment!!  I felt that the need to showcase it with a rainbow which I added using Distress Ink and water.  Her dress is stamped on a piece of patterned paper that had a soft, watercolour look to it, and I fussy cut it out.


Inside:
I used 2 other stamp sets for the inside:  Perfect Sentiments and Background Stamps.

I am loving my new Altenew stamps.  This time instead of watercolouring I used the different layers that come with the set which is called Peony Bouquet.  The inspiration for this card came from one of the Altenew DT members and you can see hers HERE.


I used silver cardstock for the sentiment to match the silver in the paper.

I stamped and die cut the big peony.  I love that the stamp set has matching dies.
